originally an oil painting, a medium a hardly care for, i sold style to a friend (i needed the cash). after some time and to my surprise, my friend wouldn’t sell the piece back to me (some pal, huh?). it’s very difficult reproducing paintings, you can never recapture the magic but what i have found is that you can make new magic from older paintings. so in essence, this painting, begun in 1998 has finally completed its journey, over 10 years later! i would never again try to “recreate” any former paintings, but there are definitely many i would like to reinvent!
